Song of the week: Summer Rain by U2

I’ve been re-ripping my CD collection to my computer lately and am pulling up a lot of the “oldies but goodies” that I enjoy and figured hey, might as well try to do some weekly music sharing to give you something to listen to.

To kick things off, I’m pulling up something from U2. I’ve been a long time fan and one of my favorite tracks comes off of their B-Sides 1990-2000 album called “Summer Rain” The music is light and the lyrics are profound:

When you stop seeing beauty you start growing old
The lines on your face are a map to your soul
When you stop taking chances you’ll stay where you sit
You won’t live any longer but it’ll feel like it

I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
I lost myself in the summer rain
In the summer rain

Tequila and orange Jamaica and rum
At the Moreilla honey on my tongue
In a small boat on a generous sea you let me be your enemy
Tiny hand with a grip on the world
Holding our breath now diving for pearls

I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
I lost myself in the summer rain
Oh oh, oh oh

Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself

I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
Now there’s no one else
In the summer rain

Raining down, it’s raining down
It rain
Raining now
Raining now

Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself

It’s not why you’re running?
It’s where you’re going?
It’s not what you’re dreaming?
But what you’re gonna do?

It’s not where you’re born
It’s where you belong
It’s not how weak
But what will make you strong?

Give it a listen and I think you’ll enjoy it too. More to come next week!
